Artwork and cuisine combine for a fundraiser set for 4 to 7:30 p.m. 19 April in the Indianapolis City Market, 222 East Market Street, Indianapolis.
"Art for Beds" benefits Gennesaret Free Clinics, which provides free health care services to homeless and the working poor in Indy through five emergency shelters, two food pantries, three medical van sites and a dental clinic.
Included is a "Taste of the Market", with sampling of City Market fare accompanied by "spirits and non-alcoholic beverages", silent and live auctions. To be offered are ceramics, jewelry, wine baskets, restaurant certificates, tickets to various venues, sports memorabilia, vacation destinations and, of course, artwork.
Steering Committee chairs are Rhonda Long-Sharp, Diana Turik and Mark Varnau. Judy O'Bannon and Amy Peterson are the 2009 honorary chairs.
Tickets are $85 per person, or $1500 for a table. Reservations are requested by 10 April, and can be made online. For more information, call Gennesaret Free Clinics, 317:639-5645.
